The Zelmenyaners describes the travails of a Jewish family in Minsk that is torn asunder by the new Soviet reality.
The Zelmenyaners (Audiobook) by Moyshe Kulbak, Hillel Halkin - translator | geodragletzparpa.gq
Four generations are depicted in riveting and often uproarious detail as they face the profound changes brought on by the demands of the Soviet regime and its collectivist, radical secularism. The resultant intergenerational showdowns—including disputes over the introduction of electricity, radio, or electric trolley—are rendered with humor, pathos, and a finely controlled satiric pen.
